California Voter's Choice Act

The California Voter’s Choice Act is a new law (PDF) passed in 2016 that will modernize elections in California by allowing counties to conduct elections under a new model which provides greater flexibility and convenience for voters.

This new election model allows voters to choose how, when, and where to cast their ballot by:

  • Mailing every voter a ballot
  • Expanding in-person early voting
  • Allowing voters to cast a ballot at any vote center within their county

Honor Veterans. Vote.

The Honor Veterans. Vote. program provides California citizens the opportunity to pay tribute and dedicate their vote to a veteran or active duty service member.
